The Charlatans announce new album ‘Modern Nature’ – listen to new song ‘So Oh’

Tim Burgess and band will tour the UK in March 2015

The Charlatans have confirmed details of their new album ‘Modern Nature’.

The 11-song LP is their 12th studio effort to date and will be released on January 26, 2015 via BMG Chrysalis. It’ll be released on a variety of formats, including a coloured vinyl release that includes four bonus tracks.

The band, fronted by Tim Burgess, have also revealed their new single ‘So Oh’, which will be released officially on December 1 and follows on from the previously-released ‘Talking In Tones’. Scroll below to listen.


‘Modern Nature’ will be the band’s first album since the death of drummer Jon Brookes last year. Tony Rogers, the band’s keyboardist, stated that “Jon was adamant that there was going to be another Charlatans record, and you have to put that into your own thoughts.”

Brookes died in August 2013 aged 44 after suffering from a brain tumour. He had battled with cancer after having a seizure on tour in 2010.
